Samsung will next year put GDDR 5 into mass production, it said today after announcing 6Gb/s 512Mb chips based on the graphics memory spec.

Samsung's GDDR 5: due next year

It's not the first. Qimonda began sampling a 512Mb GDDR 5 chip early last month and was quickly followed by Hynix, which upped the ante with a 1Gb part.

Hynix's chip has a per-pin bandwidth of 5Gb/s - enough for an aggregate 20GB/s throughput. Samsung's faster chip can deliver up to 24GB/s.

Like Samsung, both Hynix and Qimonda are expected to deliver GDDR 5 in volume next year. Samsung said its chips will be fabbed at 60nm.
